2. Read the following scenario and decide whether it is fair use, and why.
Donny has a major paper due for school. He finds a great website covering the information online. He cuts and pastes sections to put into his report. He doesn't need a bibliography for the paper, so he doesn't include one. Is this fair use?
No, because he did not cite the source.
No, because using information from websites for school projects always violates fair use.

3. Read the following scenario and decide whether it is fair use, and why.
Donny created an awesome multimedia project on the solar system using graphics he found on his local science museum’s website (which he cited in the bibliography). Now his teacher wants to post his project on the school website as an example for others. Is this fair use?
Yes. Anything used for educational purposes is unrestricted.
No. It is never OK to use multimedia from a website for a school project.
No. Even information correctly used for school projects may not be posted on a website without permission
Yes. Because Donny cited the source, he can post his project on the school website.
